Continuing communications and sustainability planning and hosting summits to build meta-leadership cooperation during times of crisis
The Foundation's Program to Improve Cooperation Among Federal, State, and Local Leaders When Responding to National and Man-Made Disasters was designed to prepare senior leaders across the multiple sectors to work effectively and collaboratively in the event of a national public health emergency.This grant project will train leaders in collaborative approaches for responding to natural and man-made disasters and other health emergencies. The training will strengthen the capacity of the public health system to respond to emergencies and to improve readiness to protect the public by facilitating discussions and planning among leaders. Leaders cross sections--businesses, government and nonprofits--so they must be ready to work together to effectively respond to and recover from a crisis. Deliverables will include: (1) hosting a minimum of 15 summits, including post-summit activities to determine how lessons were implemented; (2) building a community of advocates; (3) developing a sustainability plan; and (4) launching an online community to keep participants engaged with broader outreach through new materials, approaches and presentations.
